    Italian and French WWII army rifles are the best deals. Never fired, dropped only once. German rifles were shot continuously for 6 years, Russian rifles as much and US and British rifles 5 years of use and with the US then in Korea again

    Not to our European friends it isn't. She's an American - they want to keep trying her until they get the verdict they like. A quaint and curious system of justice.

    God, what a terrible burden - spending the rest of her life in the U.S.!

    Yeah she'll have to tread lightly with international travel. No telling what country might decide to get an IOU from Italy.

    Backwards courts over there.

He's still there, living the high life, so those across the pond who are pulling the old "America would have a fit if a country refused to extradite someone they wanted, but it's okay for them to do it" can frankly kiss my red-white-and-blue ass.

    Countries refuse to extradite American criminals all the damned time, especially countries that consider life in prison or capital punishment as unacceptable. So in order to get a stone-cold killer back, American prosecutors have to end up dealing with foreign governments and promising that the person will not get more than XX years, etc. We don't like it, but that's the way the world works. If America refuses to extradite a citizen who has already been acquitted once, Italy won't like it either, but that's the way the world works.

    Italy has proven itself a complete joke when it comes to criminal law. Their court system now takes place along side its military in terms of international esteem

    The Polanski case is totally different since the victim in that case forgave Polanski and wanted the charged against him dropped, however the brain-starved loony CA DA wanted to drag out the saga again anyway, forcing Samantha to testify and re-live the whole thing even though she wanted nothing to do w/it.

    I guess the goal of the Italian prosecutor was to make his entire country's legal system look like a rotted turd in the eyes of the world.

    For people who come from free countries, the US is indeed like a prison.
